Better Breathing: EXTENSION

This experience is intended for people who have done the Better Breathing introductory session, or have the knowledge & practical experience outlined in that experience description.

This Extension experience builds on the Introductory content getting into more detail about the autonomic nervous system and heart rate variability, as well as the vagus nerve, as it applies to breathing. You will learn how breathing can help bring you into a state of natural resilience from states of hyper- or hypo-arousal, and try out practical methods to achieve this.

The methods taught will vary depending on the needs and experience of the participants, though standard methods will include “box breathing” and “viloma” interrupted breathing.

What to wear. Lose or elastic clothing that permits free movement. It is helpful to have a warmer layer (e.g., sweater, hoodie, etc.) you can remove or put back on to adjust to any changes in temperature from breathing exercises.

What to bring. A blanket that can be folded to provide a cushioned floor mat and (if you have one) a meditation cushion or anything else that helps you sit in an upright position.
